Creative Agencies Project Management Software

Creative agencies work under tremendous pressure to bring their clients the best creative content and services within a limited time frame. Focusing on the creative aspect of work can often result in overlooking the organizational part of running an agency, leaving the door open for the creative chaos to waltz right in.

Unlock the full potential of your creative agency and let the creatives focus on what they do best - their creative work! Handling the creative and design agencies is not that different from managing any other business, looking at it from the business side. It's best you rely on project management software to plan the creative agency's organizational, scheduling, and financial aspects. ActiveCollab software will help you with custom cross-organizational reporting on your work and benefit everyone involved.

The disorganization that naturally goes hand in hand with creativity can often get in the way even for the best creatives and jeopardize their productivity. That's why creatives need to have a custom tool that they can use to check the project's progress and pull out reports, and have a visual overview of their tasks and workflows. On top of that, one more thing that can add to the mess and disorganization is keeping all sorts of info in various tools, devices, and folders. Keeping everything in the same place with an interface everyone can understand facilitates working with creatives and clients and their communication.

Creative agencies function like any other business but work in a much more unpredictable environment than other business branches. The creatives might be highly motivated, but if they stumble across a creative block, the project can get delayed, and there is no way to predict that. That is why creative agencies need to work out an automation system that will allow them to carefully plan their time, anticipate certain obstacles and bottlenecks that they might come across, and rely on previous projects to get the necessary data that will help create future estimations.

Creative Project Management Tools

ActiveCollab allows the user to manage scheduling with Workload feature. Workload allows users to view and evenly distribute all tasks among team members, leaving them sufficient time for creative growth. The Timesheets feature will let you know how much time was tracked on each task. Tracking time gives you solid data you can rely on and use in planning and scheduling your future projects. If you want to have timesheets, opt for something other than Monday. In ActiveCollab, you can monitor the project budgeting and set customizable budget limits. Time and expense tracking is something you'll be missing out on if you choose Trello and Basecamp. You can even issue an invoice based on the time tracked, an option you would not have in Asana - so your sales team will love it! In ActiveCollab, team members can use the in-app Stopwatch to track time on each task as they work on it. Pause the in-app Stopwatchi when needed and upload the time once you're done with time tracking. It's the best project management tool your team could have dreamed of, providing so much value and all the right, customizable services at such affordable pricing.
